     Sometimes the only appropriate response is to laugh... a good reminder.
    Sometimes the only appropriate response is to laugh... a good reminder.It all happened in a split second... like with many things it seems. An incident happened about three hours into a short road trip with Syd and Big Red. As I was making a lane change, I had to veer back to the safety of my original lane as another...

    #8 Thanks @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven. I'm like you... if I'm in having an off day I will look of someone to make me laugh. A good laugh is just a click away since YouTube came along. lol

    Great Buzz. I am naturally a high spirited person who loves a good laugh. "A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance" Ecclesiastes 3:4. There is a time for each of these. I find that a laugh used correctly can bring anyone out of a negative mood.

    Even in pre school I've tried to teach children "We can laugh about a lot of things. Let's do! We don't laugh AT each other, it's just funny :-) " Some kids come from families who (I think from generations on) feel treated as if they are less than others. Those kids really need it to know people can laugh about you without negative meaning.
    Good reminder Graham!

    @Graham🐝 Edwards - there is a saying in my family 'it is better to laugh than cry', basically the premises is that if you laugh about an upsetting situation you are likely to sit down and strategise a good solution rather than feeling sorry for yourself!

    Welcoming surprise is intelligent, focusing on what worked is practical, happenings create a colourful existence, being a serious dude is funny, and John Lennon sang about the rest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjWebKavfuI

    If people actually get close enough for me to hear them tell me "Manjit, give up your splendid isolation and join the real world" - that is the time I try not to laugh but welcome surprise and the whole amusing cycle begins again.

    If I do this for a several decades I will die laughing.

    Laughter is the best medicine there is. And I agree laughter does get us through difficult times. Great buzz with an important message @Graham🐝 Edwards A little laughter won't do us any harm.🤗

    I like your insight, here, @Graham🐝 Edwards. As someone who laughs quite often, I can certainly appreciate your recognizing the value of a chuckle. Question: Does it really matter what makes us laugh if we are not laughing at others or doing any harm?

    Opportunities Lost and Found
    Opportunities Lost and FoundOur global community is at a major crossroads. Thanks to our communication network and social media platforms, we are more connected than we've ever been. And yet, we seem to be more desperate for real, solid, valuable relationships.Suicide rates...

    Sound advice, Sarah, and a ballsy story too.
    Now ..... I'm currently stuck on the highway behind a slow moving flotilla of Hell's Angels bikies. If I set my mobile phone (sorry, cell phone) to speaker, will you have a quiet word with them, pretty please? 🙏

    #5 And to answer your question (oops), it's most of what you mention, but I'm not convinced of #3. Self-absorbed, yes, but I think given an opportunity, most of us care passionately about things that impact our lives. I also think the pendulum on that behavior is starting to swing the other direction, based on the reading I've been doing about the growth of business models that include sustainability, employee engagement, and personal responsibility strategies. Yes, I'm an optimist, I own that!

    #5 I'm not so sure it's age related, @David B. Grinberg, my neighbor is my age. I think it has more to do with our lack of self control when it comes to our electronic devices. The more we get sucked into them, the less we practice our in-person social skills. As a parent, it's something I've been working on for years. It recently occurred to me that I can persuade and guide other adults about this, too. We have to be good ambassadors. I'm really enjoying Melissa Hughes' book, Happy Hour with Einstein. Her book offers a high level description of how certain interactions, activities, and messages impact the actual structure and chemical make-up of our brains. It's given me a lot of ideas to implement at work and at home.

    I really like your tips for more effective in-person communication, Sarah. It's troubling when members of younger generations, Millennials and Gen Z, appear like the proverbial "deer caught in a headlight" when it comes to in-person communication -- even over the phone. However, who's really to blame here:
    1) Parents and/or schools for not teaching conventional communications?
    2) The tech-industy, parents and schools who have made it possible for kids to be born with smart devices as veritable appendages?
    3) A society that has become so distracted in today's frenetic mobile, digital and virtual world that too many people just don't care enough?
    4) Or all of the above?
    What do YOU think?

    #1 Thank you, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich and @debasish majumder, for your comments. It's just so puzzling to me how people can be so supportive and eager online, and then be completely the opposite person face-to-face. Strange.

    My smile is so wide right now. This story ripples with actionable advice on how to get back to the old-fashioned art of giving people the benefit of the doubt. The world is populated with people who can be reasoned with and quite a few of them are willing to help.

    Thank you for writing this buzz, @Sarah Elkins, and just for being you.
